Slow performance.

I'm not running much. Cairo Dock, Compiz Fusion, usually a web browser in this case Firefox 3.5. Skype, Pidgin, and AMSN. So why is my CPU always maxed out? I look in System Monitor and the processes show that nothing is using that CPU power. Any ideas why this is? I have to say Ubuntu didn't seem as system hungry. Hmmm I think I'll install HTOP and see what that reports.

Sure there's a process using a lot of cpu, it's right there at the top of the 'htop' listing using 92% cpu:


PID 2921 root 92% /usr/bin/python .<..very long path...>/system-config-services-mechanism.py


it's probably related to this:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=504964


I guess you should kill that off:
Quote:
su -c 'kill 2921'
<root password>
It might be stubborn and refuse to die, then use -9
Quote:
su -c 'kill -9 2921'
Right away do a "yum check-update" as root and make sure the system is up to date in case that was corrected.
I think the current package is (shown on my machine by running rpm -q on the package):

rpm -q system-config-services
system-config-services-0.99.35-1.fc11.noarch
